    Great brunch! Not so good dinner. The waffles here are to die for. Dinner plates however were a bit stale and plain. Don’t recommend for dinner.

    Absolute fave: French Onion soup!! ;9 Choucroute is also good. Had Steak Frites w/ both Au poivre & red wine sauces on side-both great but I prefer the wine sauce. SKIP Les Halles & come here!

    Don't sit by window! Hostesses are stupid & rude to seat 4 ppl @ these tables meant for 2 ppl!! TO OWNER/CHEF: As a result, we ordered LESS to fit our tiny, uncomfy table & didn't even order dessert!
